What is the purpose of The Holistic Chamber of Commerce?
Our primary purpose is to connect people to holistic and natural health and wellness professionals, practitioners, and businesses so they can have easier access to the services and products that can help them get and stay healthy.
We also connect people to holistic business support professionals and services so that they can help more people in effective and financially sustainable ways.
How do you define holistic?
How do you define holistic? Do you consider yourself holistic... in your approach to health, lifestyle and even business? We believe that everyone starts wherever they are and then moves along the spectrum to more sustainable ways of health, living and doing business. Still, there are key items to consider.
*Do you take a balanced approach to making decisions, considering both long-term consequences and short-term results?
*Do you evaluate the personal impact of your actions as well as the impact on others?
Many of our members focus on choices that are:
*Organic & natural *Green & sustainable *Complementary & Integrative *Alternative
Do these products, services and solutions always work?
Does penicillin always work? No. The reality is that every individual is different and will respond differently.
